Happiness Monitor

[ 14-01-2011 ] Happiness MonitorThe Happiness Monitor is an easy-to-use internet tool for assessing what people do during the day and how happy they are. The tool was developed at Erasmus University Rotterdam by Veenhoven (2006) and further refined by Oerlemans (2009). The Happiness Monitor is based on the ‘Day Reconstruction Method’ (DRM) proposed by nobel laureate Kahneman and his co-workers (2004).

The method is designed specifically to facilitate accurate assessment of daily activities and daily mood. It combines features of time-budget measurement and experience sampling. As a first step, participants ‘reconstruct’ what they have done yesterday, beginning with rising in the morning and ending with going to bed. They note each activity that lasted 15 minutes or more. Next participants rate how well they remember to have felt during each of these activities.

We are currently analyzing data and writing articles linking daily activities to daily happiness, vigor, and recovery.
